From the executive summary: "President Biden took office in January 2021, amid an unprecedented series of large-scale cyber-attacks against software supply chains, key Federal systems, and critical infrastructure. Fiscal Year (FY) 2021 began with the discovery of the SolarWinds software supply chain attack that had been ongoing since FY 2020. A series of Microsoft Exchange Server attacks was discovered less than 2 months after President Biden’s inauguration, and that was followed by the Colonial Pipeline ransomware attack. By the end of FY 2021, Federal agencies had reported a 6% increase in cyber incidents when compared against those reported in FY 2020. The President responded quickly by moving to strengthen our cybersecurity posture through a series of bold actions. These actions included Executive Order (EO) 14028, as well as a series of subsequent actions by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), the National Security Council (NSC), and the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) to protect our digital infrastructure. EO 14028, in particular, represents a paradigm shift for the U.S. Government and recognizes that previous approaches to securing Federal systems have been insufficient."
